of a bigger picture the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes and on our tv screens. gregg: i suspect that is point you would share? >> the media and "new york times" owes mitt romney a apology. he was right. waited 15 hours, the concerns that silence and weak statement out of cairo was inappropriate response. he was right. the obama administration waited 15 hours as the administration developed. their first reaction was to go after mitt romney. the mead yu followed that and we're finding mitt romney was right. this administration had a very weak reaction to a growing threat and people need to wonder what would have happened if the president came out an condemned this hours as it was happening before the ambassador was killed. gregg: rick, thank you very much. appreciate it. jenna: more on that story throughout the day for sure. meantime a powerful typhoon toppling trees and power lines and proving deadly. where this storm is hitting, we have that just ahead. >>> plus independent voters, they were key to putting president obama in the white house but could
to terrorism and foreign policy. the president promised that he'll end the iraq war, he did. he would focus on osama bin laden and bring him to justice, we did. romney called ending the iraq war tragic. it was unthinkable that we didn't leave 20,000 troops behind. he said famously in 2008, he wouldn't have gone into pakistan to get bin laden. these are important issues. not just from a foreign policy standpoint, one of the reasons that we have huge deficits we have these unpaid wars. the voters also view these foreign issues through a prism. >> david plouffe, thank you very much >>> we'll be right back with our powerhouse roundtable in just 60 seconds. it's something you're born with. and inspires the things you choose to do. you do what you do... because it matters. at hp we don't just believe in the power of technology. we believe in the power of people when technology works for you. to dream. to create. to work. if you're going to do something. make it matter. >>> quick change there. george will is off today. we're joined by donna brazile on the roundtable. matthew dowd. maggie haberman
, egypt and libya and the political unrest in arab countrys? 45-46 disapprove. foreign policy, 46 to president. 40 to romney. that is closing. is this a vulnerability for the president for your campaign? >> no. we will have the debate on foreign policy and the president is anxious to talk about how the country is safer than we've been in a long time. the daniel and deg regation we've done to al-qaeda. no doubt, they -- deg regation to al-qaeda. there are dangerous places throughout the world. benghazi is one of them. >> bret: robert gibbs, thank you. >> thank you for having me again. >> bret: okay. on the other side of the break, eric fermstrom with the romney campaign joins us with that campaign's perspective. >> bret: less than two-and-a-half hours from now, governor romney and president obama will be on that stage. no grapevine tonight so we can bring you more debate coverage. we just heard, as you know from obama senior advisor robert gibbs. now joined by romney senior advisor eric burnstrom. thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> bret: what does the governor need to do to
for the foreign policy saying it's a failed model. >> i think the foreign policy of this administration for 3 and a half, four years now has been one of a step back in the phrase that came out of the white house to lead from behind. which you can't lead from behind. leaders lead from the front. the economic management of our country has told the world that we are in decline and it was sufficient that the vice president of the united states had to go at the convention and say we are not incal decline. why did he have to say that? it is clear the country is managing its economic apairs faa way that we are modeling them after europe. that's a failed model. >> secretary rumsfeld also weighing in on the heavy see issue about why the fbi has yet to head to benghazi and libya to check out the crime scene. he says it is probably for security reasons. nevertheless a big issue. let's talk weather now. maria molina is here with an update on the current weather. >>> good morning. we are starting off with a cool note. minneapolis and 44 in rapid city. we will be heating up after temperatures well above av
d date will focus on foreign policy. earlier this week the carnegie endowment for peace posted a discussion on the president's role in leading foreign policy. they talked about challenges facing the u.s. including american influence and engagement globally, the changing international order and emerging nations. two of the featured panelists included thomas friedman, "new york times" foreign affairs columnist and author of "the world is flat." and jessica mathews, carnegie president and director of national security office of global issues. >> good evening. my name is david rothkopf, and i will be the moderator for this evening. in the carnegie endowment discussion about how should the next american president engage the world. this is a debate format discussion. we have a terrific group of panelists here. starting on the far right we have professor john ikenberry of princeton. next is tom friedman of the new york times. next to him is our own jessica matthews of the carnegie endowment, and beside jessica is bob kagan at the brookings institution and we are going to cover several
the president for what he calls a failed foreign policy? an op-ed in today's op-ed journal, romney declared the president is weakening the america's position in the world writing, "by failing to maintain the element of our influence and by stepping away from the allies, president obama has heightened the prospect of conflict and instability. he does not understand in american policy that lax resolve can provoke aggressio aggression. and carriage disorder." after a weekend of debate prep in boston, romney left for denver an wednesday's big event. while the campaign played the game of lowering expectations for the governor. >> obama is a gifted speaker. he has been on the national stage for many years. experienceed debater. he has done the debates before. this is mitt's first time on this stage. >> romney campaign was left to slap itself in the forehead when governor chris christie apparently didn't get the expectations memo. >> wednesday night is the restart of the campaign, i think you will see the numbers start to move right back in the other direction. thursday morning, the entire narrati

the critical role of the presidency particularly with a foreign policy crisis, with so many questions about management in the middle east when you have a key united nations gathering, not to meet with world leaders, including netanyahu at a time with so much concern over iran? >> this president has been, obviously, in constant contact throughout these four years with world leaders. megyn: joining me now, brad blakeman, former deputy assistant to president bush, and dick harpootlian, chairman of the south carolina democratic party. welcome back. now we see some of the senior advisers and some tough questioning put to them, in particular about a subject we've talked about on this show, and that is whether it was appropriate for the commander in chief, you know, within 24 hours of this assassination, first time since '79 a u.s. ambassador was assassinated plus three other americans, to go out to vegas on a campaign event, brad? >> well, look, this is not in keeping with their narrative, megyn, that usama's dead, and gm is alive and well. usama's dead, but al-qaeda's alive and well and killing
election, we're beginning a special look at a region at the brink and the foreign policy challenges that america is facing here in syria and afghanistan. richard engel, you have more on that attack today? >> reporter: cooperation between u.s. and afghan forces is the mission now. it is the american exit strategy. but this recent spate of insider attacks seems to show that the exit strategy isn't working. even the scene of the aftermath isn't encouraging. after gang security forces investigating themselves, a training mission where who's in charge, who can be trusted is now unclear. last night an afghan soldier known here as a & a walked up into a group of an unsuspecting group and opened fire. >> in an ensuing exchange of fire, three a & a personnel are reported to have died. we deeply regret the loss of life in this tragic incident. >> reporter: tragic certainly but some commanders have suggested it's cultural misunderstanding. it's the 57 death like this this year. the commanding general here spoke with lester about it. >> we're going to work as hard as we possibly can around the
to say that a rule of foreign policy that i like to follow that i believe should be followed is getting your objective straight before you start haggling about the details. we had no choice. now every generation since then was a great reform and i cannot think of another country where you could definitely say that the evolution that we have seen in the last 30 years depended on one man. i actually met no other chinese who had the vision and the courage to move them into the international system and engage in reform and institute a market system. the next leader came into office in the aftermath of tien an -- tiennanman restoring china to the international system and making china part of the globalist system. hu jintao is the first leader bachelet to operate a china expert of a globalist system. with each generation, the style of leadership has become less personal. that is mao was treated reverentially almost as a deity. the appointments were never scheduled because of his health but he was suddenly called out of the meeting and taken to mao without advanced warning and without it ever
strategy be for mitt romney to try and bring in sort of these foreign policy arguments because they've been on the front burner for the last couple of weeks. is there a way to bring that into his advantage tomorrow night. >> steve: even though -- >> gretchen: even though it's not supposed to be. >> brian: here is the question i would like, mitt romney, how would you -- if bill clinton couldn't have turned this economy around in four years, even he couldn't turn it around in four years what, could you have done to turn it around in four years? see if he comes back with specifics or if he comes back with rhetoric. can mitt romney comment on why he has offshore accounts? can mitt romney thoroughly and adequately explain the 47% comment which has been used for the other side in ads and can he expand on his math on the economy? if he can do that in a way in which we can all understand without generality, i think he could have momentum. if not, then president obama -- >> steve: they've been working on the lines, first in vermont and now out in colorado as well. it's interesting, though, to hear h

, there were huge mistakes made here and huge i argue foreign policy mistakes were compounded by the original decision they weren't going to use the information that the intelligence community was giving them. i think it's a dangerous decision. i think we're seeing that now and we're going to pay a price for this. >> have you been told you're going to get all of the cables, anything in prior months in and years to this, that this was coming, especially in the two or three months before? >> we've requested the documents. they have yet to arrive. the cooperation is not what we had hoped. i just hope we don't have to ramp this up. we should do this as an internal investigation so that we can move forward and make sure that the other embassies of the world that we don't not let al-qaeda off the hook on this and i tell you, again, that 9/11 commission was very strong. not responding to the u.s.s. cole may have cost us the 9/11 attack, but clearly it was in their mind they could do more. we have to make sure this gets shut off now. i said at the beginning, that if a month from that event, we're sti
foreign policy, others have been about the economy, like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisers say his campaign collapsed along with it and never recovered. historians say in order for an october surprise to have a real 11th hour impact it has to feed into a narrative that already exists, whether it's carter's ineffectiveness or questions about mccain's credentials on the economy. >> it's not so much that suddenly, eureeka, this is so surprising, so amazing but rather people nod, yes, this is where we thought things were going. >> that is so fascinating. dana bash is live from our washington bureau. so, question, do some think friday's jobs report from the labor department, could that be an october surprise? >> sure. why not, carol? at this point, anything could be an october surprise. the fact is that maybe we've already seen it. maybe it was the tragedy in libya, the unrest in the middle east and how the candidates responded. maybe it was that infamous 47% remark that mitt romney had. maybe one or both of the campaigns has some dirty trick in their pocket that
an administration that has a foreign policy that is in confusion. it is not clear to our allies nor to our foes. with regards to iran, in 2009 we saw a student protestors. no word from this administration. no word at all. finally, in 2011, the united states stepped forward with sanctions. i am happy that the european nations have stepped forward with sanctions as well. but we need to be clear with our allies, with our ally israel. it is not just a problem of that region. this is a problem for the world. it is estimated that in three years, the iranians are going to have icbm's that could reach the united states. this is our concern, and we have heard nothing from this administration with regard to iran enriching uranium. there's a lot of leader -- lack of leadership, a lack of clarity. i want america to remain a stabilizing force in the world. we need to have that. but with the lack of leadership, lack of clarification, what our allies don't know what we're doing, when our foe shalits just, we've lost that. >> senator kerrey? >> i don't know who is more confused, governor romney or president ob
they are giving a foreign policy speech monday at the virginia military institute. i has to layout his policy-heavy forward looking agenda. maybe he should give another speech on taxes, debt, on obamacare and keep up on the offensive on policy, i think that is the key. jenna: substance is something we've talked about talked a lot about. you mentioned the media being critical of the romney campaign. you at times have been critical of the romney campaign, maybe a little wary as well. do you think you've under estimated this candidate ear group. >> i think i may have under estimated the candidate. the first people in the campaign would be to say this was mitt romney on the stage there. was no campaign out there. rob portman did a very good job of playing barack obama in the debates and being a tough opponent for mitt romney. one of the mistakes owe obama made was having john kerry, the senator of massachusetts play mitt romney. he wants to be secretary of state in a second obama administration if he wants to. i bet he was not tough on obama. when romney began seriously responding to obama's atta
for calling on me. eric mcsaiden, institute for foreign be policy analysis. i wonder if the new leadership in china and the relatively new leadership in north korea provide us with some opportunities, whether we can create opportunities for further cooperation and engagement. >> well, i think for china that is definitely the case. obviously, that's not new leadership either to china or to us. many of those individuals we've known, we've worked with in the past, and they've all indicated their, not only their willingness, but their desire to continue to develop this relationship in a positive way. economically, politically, but for us in the defense department, in a security sense. in north korea we'll have to see. we remain concerned about so many dimensions of north korea, and that's one of the reasons why we're so intent upon solidifying our posture there. and, um, that's the reason why we're looking at, um, a number of steps in korea that i'm sure you're familiar with, but i'll just remind you of what's going on there. we are making our presence there, particularly our ground force pres

to foreign policy, it's not likely to get any easier for the president. the middle east is a tinderbox. the murder of an american ambassador in libya goes begging for an explanation as to why repeated requests for additional security in our consulate in benghazi were turned down. and the white house won't answer any questions about this except to say that the fbi is conducting an investigation. the fbi. that's not nearly enough. here's the question, why did president obama do so poorly at last night's debate? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile, post a comment on the blog or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. >> good question, jack. >>> bored, aloof, even arrogant, some of the words critics are using to describe the president's performance at last night's debate. up next i'll ask his press secretary to explain the performance what was going on. plus, pursed lips and raised eyebrows. how one expert uses special software to measure the candidates' expressions. questions? anyone have occasional constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap
configuration may not be understood. or the risk of leaked intellectual property to foreign businesses and governments. when it comes to articulating the failure of policy on the subject, particularly as a relate its to cyberspace. one look no further than the panel that is here with me today to give you a sense of the potential devastating consequencingses. the second key feature is linked to the one i described is the the increasingly many of the segments vital to defense are commercial in nature. this is a threand department the is frankly more willing to recognize in policy than in practice. i would hasrd a to guess 25 years ago, nearly 70% of the defense the department procured were developmented and produced for the develop. today, i would suggest that the ratio has reversed with roughly 70 percent of the goods and services now either produced for commercial consumption or originally developed with commercial applications in mind as well as a largely commercial base supply chain. this is a very difficult concept for many in our business to get they're their arms around. frankly t
